Death on Skiis: I love the way that Kay Wiley and Tony Shaw are supposed to be 20 somethings yet sound like they are in their 60s, while the husband, Dan Wiley, is supposed to be 41, and sounds about that, if not a bit younger. Otto reminds me of Klaus from American Dad. And, Tony Shaw emphasizes how he is this fun loving ski bum by talking about practical jokes he has pulled in the driest most humorless fashion! But, all the so-bad-its-good comments aside, it is well acted and extremely enjoyable. Great episode.
Having a Horrible Time: All the male voices sound similar, from the phone call to Fred Russell, Ralph Cook and George Smith. Not sure if they are doubled up, though the ending credits suggest otherwise. Lois Wilson has a Carol Burnett type voice and Amy Hasting's voice is difficult to describe. Great great episode.
The Woman in Red: Love any television or radio program that references modern art. Emmett Porcelain is a great character. Almost sounds like he is voiced by Brother Theodore, but it is someone else. The seedy bar, bickering cops..great stuff.
The Case of MJH: I try to model myself after Jimmy French, a down on his luck hustler trying to make a big score to pay off his debt and land the girl. Well, personality wise. More like an acted version, without the actual hustling, since I am not cut out for that.
Sign of the Beast: Crazy episode. She just screams she is hungry and doesn't go Lycan on everyone, like she would in an episode of True Blood, where everyone in her camp would be dead the first night. But, she finally goes off to hunt and kill later on, so it's not like she screams like an enraged infant waiting for someone to help for too long. Powerful episode.

Subject: Love this
Subject: The entire series....wow! Needs an upgrade!
Most of it is, admittedly, not very good.
I found 257 remastered episodes here:
I tried uploading them here recently, but ran into difficulty with my computer.
These episodes are free of commercials and period news, and the sound quality is as close to pristine as they most likely have ever been. Wish we could get the entire like that.

Subject: Time capsule gems
Not only did I enjoy the well-acted dramas, but as a historian I also loved the snippets of news contained in some files, as well as the advertisements. It stuck me how the stories themselves and their narration are little time capsules of 1970s America: compared to the 2010s, for example, the language is often gendered, and many shows reflect the Cold War anxieties of the time.
Subject: Great Commercials and News
The shows themselves are great but what I enjoy most are the newscasts and commercials that go along with them.
I was born in 1973 so listening to some of the old Contact Cold Medicine and Bud commercials bring back such great old memories.
Thank you for putting these on here.
I have enjoyed them so much.
Subject: Modern audio drama
It brings me back... Hailing from Norway, there's isnt that much in my own language of audio drama available on the internet, so joy when I found CBS Mystery Theater.
I am currently also listening to the Witch-hunter http://whchronicles.wordpress.com/, a belgian group dedicated to revieve the noble art of audio drama, in a modern way. The witch-hunter have a strong fantasy theme, but otherwise it's excellent and worth chekcing into. A new episode is aired every sunday. good listening

Subject: mystery theater is part of my teen years
by the time i was 14 i had my first stereo and along with music, i listened to mystery theater throughtout my teen years.
i love the themes, the music, the sound effects, and now i appreciate the philosophies given by e.g. marshall. these shows bring me back to the late 1970s and i think about family and people i knew then. many are now gone. it is sentimental for me to listen to these shows.
i still visualize the physical settings of the stories in my mind like i did back 30 years ago and i still fall asleep and miss the end of the stories, but now i can listen to the same story the next night because i download these shows.
these were great shows for a teen and now they are great shows for a middle aged person. these shows are timeless.
i think it is good for one's mind to visualize the story settings and i think shows like this help with one's listening skills.
these shows should have been put onto cds or dvds 10+ years ago when tv and radio become unbearable.
someone needs to digitally enchance these shows and put them all on dvds. keep the news and commericals in them if you can.
thank god for the people who taped these shows 30+ years ago who let us enjoy them again today.

Dave74: I wasn't aware "The Horla" was re-made for CBSRMT. I have a copy of it from a short-lived 1940s series called "Mystery in the Air," starring Peter Lorre.

Audio quality is decent enough. Tammy Grimes' voice is perfect. Great cast & performances. Great story. This is a rare find.
Look out Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It's Resident Killer!

Subject: Great Memory's
When I was growing up in the 70's This show was something I always looked forward to...
I remember listening to them on WOR 710 in NY with my dad.. He grew up listening to Radio as a child and I always remember him saying how much he missed the great shows of radio past.
It is truly the last link to those Great Radio shows..
Subject: Memories of days past
The quality of recording varies however for a free download what do you expect.
I listen to them on the way to work now. Often getting stuck in traffice as a result. It's sad there isn't any good content on the radio anymore.
I used to have a $4000 stereo in my car. Now there is no more music, people like H Stern, and just worthless talk. Thanks to Internet Archive users that have shared these resources to people.
Subject: Had to give KUDOS
I wish we had more episodes to enjoy, CBSRMT was the swan song of the radio drama, but it was the catalyst for my love of OTR programming!
